So, Henry thinks it'd "be ace" if you guys could swing by the Best of London Designer sale. You probably don't want to go out of your way just because Henry thinks it'd be swell. But you'll definitely want to go for his clothes, or maybe a severely discounted Jonathan Saunders dress or Richard Nicoll jacket?

Or, if you can't handle "the Alice" maybe you'd like a few pairs of her sister's shoes since Charlotte Olympia will be there, too? It's like London fashion week all over again but so much better because you can buy the clothes for 50% off retail prices.

Lulu Kennedy is Amazing, Not Only Because She Said ‘Fashionista’s Got Balls’
LONDON--Fashion East, the London launchpad for raw young talent, celebrated its 10th year with the launch of a 10-piece range under new label Lulu & Co. Each look, some of which were only seen on the runway--never in stores--were handpicked by Fashion East founder Lulu Kennedy from the archives of alum like Richard Nicoll, Roksanda Ilincic, Jonathan Saunders and Henry Holland. To mark the occasion, the East End fashion pack brought the party West to Harvey Nichols in London's posh Knightsbridge neighborhood for a Mexican-themed disco replete with fish tacos, hibiscus margaritas, and wonderfully kitsch gold palm trees. Everyone from Roisin Murphy and Pixie Geldof to supermodel/presenter Jade Parfitt spun around in their favorite pieces from the range, while a tagteam set was DJ'd by Princess Julia, House of Holland and Hazel. We nabbed the ageless fairy godmother of London fashion, Lulu Kennedy, dressed in a fiery organza gown by Jonathan Saunders, to talk disco and a decade of designers.
The Top 10 Fall Trends from London Fashion Week
Playing the name game in London is far from easy: So many cool young designers, so many unusual names, and only a week to make sense of them all.

No worries; the clothes spoke volumes for themselves, as London dialed down the quirked, and turned out one of the most sophisticated seasons in recent years. See for yourself!
